Kid’s Reviews

By Lyda Whiting



Written by Louise L. Hay and Kristina Tracy, illustrated by Manuela Schwarz

I feel what I feel, and I think what I think. It’s not like I can change my feelings or the thoughts in my head. Right? Actually, you can turn negative thoughts around, and make yourself happier, by changing the words that you think and say into positive ones. And this book can show you how.

Turn feeling alone into “I am surrounded by love.” Turn wanting something into “I’m grateful for all I have.” Using relatable situations, this book teaches children how to create and use their own positive affirmations. Bright illustrations of children interacting at a fair help bring the simple and powerful text to life.

Louise Hay has been teaching “your thoughts create your life” for over 25 years. Now she expands her teaching with this delightful book for children.

Highly recommended for ages 3 and up.

Climb into a hot air balloon and sail over the moon. Play with the dolphins and whales in a magical ocean full of secret treasures. Sing and dance on a moonlight beach with your friends. Believe in your dreams and they will come true.

Come on an amazing journey of discovery, and be sure to bring a friend. On this voyage, anything you can dream can happen. Along the way, you will realize that the journey matters more than the destination.

The simple poetry and positive message of this book makes it perfect for bedtime reading. The charming illustrations have a soft, slightly old-fashioned feeling. Together, they create a lovely atmosphere that gently leads the heart to dream and soar.

This is an excellent read-aloud book, and also good for early readers.

Recommended for ages 3 and up.

Share the good within you. Do what you love. Let your love pour out. Find a quiet place inside. Let go of the past. Positive thoughts lead to good things. Take care of yourself. Focus on what you want. Know that you are special. But how do you do it? Let this book guide the way.

These ten simple concepts can be the foundation for a loving and fulfilled life. It is never too early to learn them.

In this book, the renowned author brings to children the ideas from his bestseller, 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace. Reading this can help children to realize their own wisdom and magnificence, and that is a gift at any age.

Recommended for ages 3 and up.

What are grandparents for? For being proud and bragging about you out loud. For playing peek-a-boo, and visits to the zoo. For trips to the park, and stories after dark. And most of all, for loving you. That’s what grandparents are for.

This happy book celebrates the special moments between grandparent and child, including dancing and playing together, talking about everything under the sun, and just enjoying each other.

The rhythm of the rhymes sets a lively tone, and cheerful and colorful illustrations bring it to joyful life. Every child will find a grandparent that looks much like theirs, and a child who looks much like them, in the diverse illustrations. This book is a loving tribute to the grand bond of these special relationships.

Recommended for ages 3 and up.
